The past year has been full of travel for me - new cities and different weather has been keeping my allergies in full bloom. There is nothing worse than having to deal with itchy, watery eyes, runny nose and itchy throat while on business (or even vacation!) I hate canceling out so when I show up, everyone thinks I'm sick and contagious! It also takes a toll on me mentally... wondering if I look ugly because of ALLERGYFACE! The absolute worse for me though are headaches associated with my allergies. I just want to stay in bed all day! I recently was in Chicago and started feeling headachy... there was no way I could miss out on an important dinner so I took a quick cool shower and I immediately felt better. Here are tips from my mom to help with ALLERGYFACE!
- Avoid allergens - Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from pollen and make sure your hotel pillows are hypoallergenic.
- Good air quality - Sometimes you can't help being inside but make it a point to crack open a window or go outside for fresh air!
- Take short cool showers - This relieves my face like you wouldn't believe and makes me feel energetic.
- Drink peppermint tea - This is amazing for clogged up noses.
- Eat wasabi - Open up your tear ducts and sinuses
